Citizens of Pesakih Daan Mogot Flat Tower, West Jakarta are utilizing the surrounding 1-hectare-width land into an agricultural area.
" Most agricultural products are used to meet the needs of daily flat citizens"
They planted various types of medicinal plants, vegetables, and fruits on the land.
"Most agricultural products are used to meet the needs of daily flat citizens. But some from outside the flat come to buy our medicinal plants," said a citizen of Pesakih Flat Tower Block A, Kirsan (50), Tuesday (3/12).
Before starting this activity, they got training from West Jakarta Maritime, Agriculture, and Food Security Sub-agency.
"They (sub-agency) also give us plant seeds and fertilizers aid. Together we process them to succeed as it is now," he told.
While the Tambora low-cost apartment management (UPRS) Executing Unit Head, Hendy RF added that 699 households who occupy 640 units in Pesakit Flat are actively managing this project.
"Surely those who planted and cared for would enjoy the results and also be shared to other occupants," he stated.
